Work Type/s: Full time preferred, 3-4 days/week considered (please specify your preference when applying)
Salary: $80,000 + super (pro-rata if part time)
Location: ACCR has offices in Sydney and Canberra, with the possibility for substantial work from home if desired; we are open to other Australian locations, working remotely
ACCR has a dynamic team of approximately 20 driven and experienced staff, located around Australia, and we work together with a network of partners globally. As shareholders ourselves, we pursue various avenues of shareholder advocacy, including through the filing of shareholder resolutions. Working together with partners globally, we seek to impel major shareholders in particular companies responsible for systemically significant greenhouse gas emissions, to support assertive decarbonisation strategies. Thanks to a heightened awareness of the importance of our work, and the urgency of the issues - like climate change - that we work on, we are growing rapidly.
ACCR challenges companies to respond to the most important issues of our time, like how they treat their workers, the planet and all who have a stake in their business activities, such as First Nations communities. We are compelled by the importance and urgency of these matters, and use all the tools available to shareholders to make concerns known to companies, to seek fast and effective change. We were founded as a non-profit organisation in 2012, and since that time we have promoted ethical investment and assisted investors through education, research, collaboration, engagement and advocacy. We are a member of both the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia (RIAA).
This role will be offered for an initial 12 month period, with the expectation of extension.
